Tesco Clubcard points from the last collection period should now be showing online at tesco.com.
If you are thinking of where to convert, we now have an inkling of what is available in terms of incentives:
If you convert to Avios via an avios.com account, you will be entered into a competition. Every £2.50 you convert gets you one entry. Two people will win 50000 Avios, three people will win 25000 Avios and 150 people will win 5500 Avios. The deadline to convert to be entered is 28th February. Details are here.
If you convert to Avios via a BA account …. we don’t know. I am willing to bet on British Airways offering a competition of some sorts but the details may not appear for a day or so. You may want to hold off converting until you can compare the two.
If you convert to Virgin Flying Club, there appears to be a 20% conversion bonus. I stress ‘appears’ because – whilst people who auto-convert to Virgin seem to have had a 20% bonus applied – there is no mention yet on either the Clubcard or Virgin Atlantic websites. I would expect full details in a few days. Keep an eye on the Virgin / Tesco website page here.
Personally ….. I am converting to Uber at the moment. It is a ‘genuine’ 3x face value deal and our Uber spend is fairly high. My choice is converting every £10 of vouchers into either £30 of Uber credit or 2400 Avios or 2500 Virgin miles. This means I would be ‘paying’ 1.25p per Avios or 1.2p per Virgin mile (1p with the 20% bonus) if I took those instead and I’m not willing to pay that.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (June 2022)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
In February 2022, Barclaycard launched two exciting new Barclaycard Avios Mastercard cards.
Until 18th July 2022 there is an astonishing special offer on these cards. You get 50,000 Avios on the Avios Plus Mastercard and 10,000 Avios on the free Avios Mastercard. You can apply here. We strongly recommend getting the Avios Plus card whilst this offer is running.
You qualify for the bonus on these cards even if you have a British Airways American Express card:
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses:
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.
SPECIAL OFFER: The sign-up bonus on Amex Gold is increased from 20,000 Membership Rewards points to 30,000 Membership Rewards points until 19th July 2022. This card is free for the first year.
Run your own business?
We recommend Capital On Tap for limited companies. You earn 1 Avios per £1 which is impressive for a Visa card, along with a sign-up bonus worth 10,000 Avios.
You should also consider the British Airways Accelerating Business credit card. This is open to sole traders as well as limited companies and has a 30,000 Avios sign-up bonus.
There are also generous bonuses on the two American Express Business cards, with the points converting at 1:1 into Avios. These cards are open to sole traders as well as limited companies.
